SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals

SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals

In many countries countless abandoned animals live on the streets. Many of these dogs and cats have been abandoned or born as strays. Life on the streets is dangerous and full of privation. Injured and sick animals usually have no chance to survive and usually die in agony and alone on the streets. Often in such cases there is no lack of helpfulness of people who love animals, but of their financial means to have street animals treated by a veterinarian.
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation set up the SUST Animal Orphan Hospitals to ensure that these animals also receive help in need.
At present, there is one of these institutions in each of the following countries
- Galati, Romania
- Bucharest, Romania
- Hurghada, Egypt
- Bello Horizons, Peru
Since their opening, animals that have been injured or sick have been brought daily to the SUST Animal Orphan Hospitals, where they are professionally treated and cared for. If the animals are healthy and strong enough to survive on the streets after their recovery, they are released back into their territory. If possible, animals with special needs will be accommodated in animal shelters. Fortunately, new places for patients can be continuously found.
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation finances the veterinary costs, clinic equipment, medicines, operations, therapies, food and care in the animal orphanage hospitals. The SUST often also finances the construction of the corresponding clinic.
The activities of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation are financed exclusively by donations and legacies (no public support).



Kira, also known as "Sock"

Kira came to the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Bucharest, Romania in a very bad condition. She was apathetic and had no appetite. In addition, her stomach was distended and the little lady dog was obviously suffering from abdominal pain. On the X-ray, the veterinarians discovered that something was blocking the passage in her intestine. Since this is a life-threatening condition, Kira was immediately operated on. The foreign body turned out to be an old sock, which almost became her undoing. After waking up from the anesthesia, the pile of misery turned into a funny puppy again, who gratefully accepts his second chance.

Have your animals also swallowed things that were not good for them?
